27th annual Hunter Hotel Investment Conference unveils agenda for March 25 – 27, 2015

Unparalleled opportunity sets the tone for top lodging conference

ATLANTA, February 4, 2015 – While March means madness for college hoops fans, it means opportunity for the nation’s lodging leaders. Event organizers with the 27th annual Hunter Hotel Investment Conference, one of the nation’s top four hotel investment conferences, are busy preparing for the best Hunter Conference to date…on March 25 – 27th.  With a line-up of the most recognizable names in lodging and an opportunistic theme to “Seize the Day,” the Hunter conference is expected to attract over one thousand hotel owners and executives to the Atlanta Marriott Marquis to hear from the industry’s top leaders and experts. 

Topping the list are Keynote Speaker Steve Joyce, president and chief executive officer of Choice Hotels International, and the President’s Panel including Michael G. Medzigian, chairman and managing partner of Watermark Capital Partners and Jim Merkel, president and chief executive officer of Rockbridge. For the second year, there will be a pre-conference gathering for young hoteliers who will have a private event featuring highly respected hotelier and Noble Investments CEO Mit Shah. 

The agenda also features speakers and discussions by a wide cross-section of the leading industry innovators, economists and thought leaders on timely topics ranging from new hotel development to market trends and valuations. 

New to the conference is a portfolio panel featuring some of the industries leading buyers and sellers of multiple properties and the panel will be moderated by Hunter Hotel Advisors President Teague Hunter.  Back by popular demand is Finance Friday, a full day dedicated to hotel financing with an extensive array of panels by over 21 borrowers and active lenders.

“It’s an opportune time to refinance, buy, sell, develop and renovate.  Our conference theme is a call to action for hoteliers to step up and move forward in this strong and growing market,” said Lee Hunter, conference co-chair and chief operating officer of Hunter Hotel Advisors.  “We work hard year round to produce a conference that delivers engaging, meaningful, and relevant topics so our attendees have the tools to identify new opportunities and take full advantage of the market’s growth.” 

Known as the hotel real estate and finance conference designed for hotel owners, the Hunter Conference has a loyal following of attendees and sponsors as well as the highest percentage of hotel owners in attendance of any of the major hotel conferences.  To view the conference agenda and for online registration, please visit the conference website at  The deadline to receive discounted early bird rates is February 18.
